    I really do miss my P-bass. After hearing Chris Chaney's playing with Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders, I just came to the conclusion that a P-bass is essential to MY sound. Just mourning over lack of money at the moment. :(

    Hang in there. The cool thing is that used MIA P's can be found at decent prices when you raise the cash. Same goes for the used Skyline Glaubs. :cool:

    I really regret selling my '57 Reissue P-Bass to my friend, but I know it's in a great home. It was the best P-Bass I've owned (and I've owned quite a few over the years), but I was big into the EB/MM Sterling at the time I sold it, and I hadn't used it for a few years. :bawl:

    I searched ebay for awhile and I ended up finding a MIA P-Bass w/case for under $500.00. I added a Nordstrand NP4 pickup and a set of flatwounds. Wow! -Instant classic 60's/70's soul tone. :cool:

    No matter which bass I take to a gig as my main axe, that P-Bass always comes along and it gets played at every gig. :bassist:

    I'm thinking about just picking up a CIJ LPB '62 Reissue for my stable.
  4. tplyons you seem to have a lot of heartache over missed basses. You said when you saw my Ray that you miss yours, now you miss your p-bass... Lack of money sucks!!! I hope you come into some cash sometime soon and can be reunited with your lost loves!
    And in keeping with the topic I guess I miss my p-bass now and then, but I pick up my ray and soon feel better ;)

    Well, I truly miss both of those basses, but I have a perfect jazz bass for me, and lack of money does suck.

    Even more is having that money, and saving it for something bigger...

    Cool or your Valenti could be a P bass.

    Everyone's _gotta_ have at least one P-Bass. I also find that, even though I love my MM, I always end up going back to the P. :cool:

    Just ordered a MIJ P-bass from Ishibashi last night....big 70's reissue ash beast with maple neck and I have the feeling this bass is going kick ass....

    Money is tight for me too and ended up laying down $850 for this including shipping.....

    Good news is you can get a great P bass for 5 or 600 bucks if you look around.
